UK: Phase One of Stansted Airport’s new International Departure Lounge officially opens

Manchester Airport Group (MAG) appointed Chapman Taylor to develop the concept and scheme design for the major reconfiguration of the International Departure Lounge at Stansted International Airport, UK. The scheme includes a walk through World Duty Free store, 3,000m2 of retail and 3,040m2 of food and beverage units.

Phase one of Stansted Airport’s brand new international departure lounge was officially opened on Monday.  This first phase includes a new World Duty Free shop (the largest of its kind in terms of retail space) and other high street travel brand stores. In total this phase has created an extra 250 full and part-time jobs.

Jonathan Fishlock, Associate Director at Chapman Taylor, comments: “As the leading architect practice in the UK for Retail in transportation environments, our brief from MAG was to create a world-leading International Departure Lounge Retail and F&B offer to rival any other airport in Europe, if not the world. Whilst this is only the first phase of the revitalised retail offer we are delighted that we are well on the way to helping MAG achieve their vision for Stansted’.

The overall transformation project, set to be fully complete by autumn 2015, will significantly improve the services and facilities available for passengers.
